Red Nose Day, run by Comic Relief, is a campaign dedicated to raising money by having fun and making people laugh. Money raised is spent to help lift children and young people out of poverty in the US and some of the poorest communities in the world.
LassiterWare bought 100 Red Noses, enough for each employee, but had an idea for LassiterWare Cares in helping contribute even more to this great cause. LassiterWare Cares offered a Red Nose to each employee for $5 dollars. All proceeds went in support of Red Nose Day. Each office participated and wore their noses proudly.
Deliver the Difference is a nonprofit organization that is located throughout Central Florida and is dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty through life skills and nutrition. They have organized the distribution of over 400,000 meals in 2015 and we are proud supporters of this great cause. Each of our offices kicked off their own food drive and collected items to donate. Upon delivering these items LassiterWare Cares brought 45 individuals to participate in a meal packaging project.
At LassiterWare’s 2015 Annual Day of Discovery, LassiterWare Cares teamed up again with Deliver the Difference to fund a project out at Mission Inn, located in Howey-in-the-Hills. Every single LassiterWare employee was in attendance and participated in packing over 25K meals for distribution throughout the areas we serve in Florida and South Carolina flood victims.
The LassiterWare Cares Day of Service is a company wide event. Each office has their choice of who they would like to help and whether they would like to donate their time as a volunteer, make a monetary donation (provided by LWC & LassiterWare) or both!
2016 – For the Ocala Team, the Interfaith Emergency Services has always spoken to their hearts. Interfaith provides assistance to those in need in the Marion County. Their services include providing food, clothing, and a shelter for single women, moms with children and families. Having worked with Interfaith before, the Ocala crew wanted to continue to lend a helping hand by working in the kitchen of the homeless shelter serving food, bagging food items and putting together hygiene bags. Great job Team Ocala!
